The FBI virus (FBI Moneypak virus, FBI computer lock, FBI browser lock, etc.) is also otherwise popularly known as ranswomware that was discovered in 2012. Cyber criminals use this malware in order to attempt to disguise themselves as the FBI so they can scare victims into paying an unnecessary fine.
The virus uses Trojan horses such as Trojan.Ransomlock.R,reveton, etc. that is placed on a website in order to lock computer systems and/or lock internet browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer.
Once installed, the FBI Ransomware will be configured to start automatically when you login to Windows. Once started, it displays a large alert allegedly from the FBI stating that your computer has been blocked due to its involvement with the distribution of pornographic material or copyrighted content. In order to access your Windows desktop and your applications, you must first pay a fine of $100 in the form throughMoneyPak. Once the malware developers receive the ransom, they will then unlock your computer within 1 to 48 hours. To make the alert seem more authentic, the malware also has the ability to access your installed webcam so that the alert shows what is happening in the room.
The FBI MoneyPak virus is distributed throughmalicious websites, or legitimate websites that have been hacked, or through exploit kits that use vulnerabilities on your computer to install this Trojan without your permission or knowledge.
Another method of transmission is through spam email containing infected attachments or links to malicious websites. A typical example of an email like this would be from courier services like DHL or Fedex that claim you missed an important package. The threat may also be downloaded manually by tricking the user into thinking they are installing a useful piece of software, for instance a bogus update for Adobe Flash Player or another piece of software.
Under no circumstances should you give in to this threat and send any Ukash or Paysafecard code to these cyber criminals.
System Restore helps you restore your computer's system files to an earlier point in time. This is the best way to undo unwanted system changes to your computer without affecting your personal files, such as e mail, documents, or photos.
Unfortunately, the FBI MoneyPak virus will not allow you to start the computer in Windows regular mode, which is why we need to start System Restore from the Safe Mode with Command Prompt mode.

I got stuck with a problem not being able to get internet access or email and after two days of pulling what hair I left out I called Jupiter Support and asked for help. The agent Alex was professional and courteous. I thought I’d have to spend an arm and a leg to get my computer back up but was surprised when they offered me a very affordable rate. What’s even better, Alex advised me that if they didn't fix it, I didn’t have to pay. Amazing services. Thank you guys.
